Growing resentment among lover classes, new ideas about government, serious economic problems, weak and indecisive leadership, and a food shortage caused by horrible weather. The bad weather caused an inflation in bread prices and many people went hungry.
  • The Storming of the Bastille
  • The peasants wanted a change so all is the estates met. However, the way it was set up as each estate got only 1 vote so the privileged estated could always outvote the third. It was suggested that the third estate rename themselves the national assembly and pass laws in the name of the French people.
  • The Great Fear
  • The king is going to kill us!
  • When the National Assembly found themselves locked out of their meeting room. They broke into an indoor tennis court and vowed not to leave until a new constitution had been drawn up.
  • There were rumors that the king was going to send the military to destroy the National Assembly and massacre the French people. They gathered weapons to defend Paris and stormed a French prison called the Bastille to get gunpowder. This happened on July 14, 1789, and is French Independence day and considered the first act of Revolution for France.
  • The Great Fear was a wave of senseless panic that caused Rebellion throughout France. It was rumored that Nobels were hiring outlaws to terrorize the peasants so the peasant became outlaws themselves. They broke into noble houses, destroyed documents, burned down noble houses, and many people died.
